A couple posts ago, I mentioned that I am working on a character design for a space captain. The idea for him came from a doodle I did in my sketchbook while I was thinking about my old Neptune paintings. I thought, I wonder what other space oriented stuff I can dig out of my imagination? The thing sort of took on a life of its own, and now I want to take the whole thing further. Here is the original doodle of a rough idea for a space station, and here is a portrait of where I think I am going to take the captain.
